Outstanding use of resources to increase awareness about and access to higher education.

As this program is in its 7th year, it would be nice to know what the 18% figure represents in relation to pre-program enrollment and enrollment in each year of the program.

CSU "Recruiters, counselors, and financial aid representatives, visiting 100 African-American churches in Ca, 22 in Bay Area" ...that is quite a nice personal delivery system.
If only white males WITH GPA, but have an unemployed father,whose home is underwater, could get the attention of a financial aid rep on campus...but that's not good enouigh for white males.
There's a name for that practice of different'll come to me in a minute.....

Attempting to make up for past injustices inflicted upon a race of people over the course of centuries?

Absolutely. Only a squid brain would want to promote racial inclusiveness when so many real Americans are hurting. During a time of collapse such as this, it's important that we circle the wagons and protect our own.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
